Scripture at Sunrise 6.17.09

“Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.”  -Colossians 3:2

“When someone sets his affections upon the cross and the love of Christ, he crucifies the world as a dead and undesirable thing.  The baits of sin lose their attraction and disappear.  Fill your affections with the cross of Christ and you will find no room for sin.”  -John Owen

[as quoted in Worldliness: Resisting the Seduction of a Fallen World, edited by C.J. Mahaney, pg. 108]
